Other useful expressions:
- "Geef er een lap op!" (something like "kick some ass")
- "Gaan met die banaan" (would be really weird if literally translated but means "go for it")
- "We zullen duimen" ("We'll keep our fingers crossed")
- "Proficiat" ("Congratulations")
- "Goed gedaan!" ("Well done")

Re: Flipper 2014!

Very nice, solid play this moment. Looks like Lino has no chances 3-0 in the 2nd set. Keep goin Kirsten!

Re: Flipper 2014!

And she wins 6-2/6-1 Next round probably against Kerber. Will be tougher, but I feel like Kirsten can make life very difficult for Kerber on grass.

Re: Flipper 2014!

Easy, clean match where everything was working fine (serve, net play, forehands). I expect hard match against Kerber on saturday. She wasn't perfect in her match against Watson today se Kirsten has her chance for sure!

Kirsten said in the newspaper that right now, she's got the feeling she's at her Wimbledon 2013 level again. She knows it's gonna be tough, but she really believes in her chances against Kerber

Re: Flipper 2014!

I had to sort out my thoughts bf I post here . Of course I'm sad that Kirsten did not get victory today, but her level of play was very good, Kerber improved in 2nd and 3rd, played some unreturnable shots from defense and at the end was better.
As I always try to be optimistic I think if Kirsten holds this level of her game than she can have very good hardcourt season in US and Asia. I hope she stays healthy and makes good impact in rest of the year!

Yes, she can leave with her head held high

The problem last year with the Autumn season was that she dragged along that knee injury. It doesn't seem to bother her that much at the moment, so that's good.

But she won't have her seeded ranking anymore. Perhaps it's a good idea to stick to Internationals for a while, until her ranking is a bit higher again.

Re: Flipper 2014!

She said in an interview she first wants to solve the knee problems now. So I guess the knee is still not 100%.

Andrea Petkovic - Sara Errani - Jarka Gajdosova - Alizé Cornet

Re: Flipper 2014!

My guess is that match against Watson is on Tuesday. Can't wait.
